Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, who suffered a horrific injury in the Brazil encounter, has spoken for the first time.
The Cyprus based keeper was taken off after landing awkwardly while trying to deal with a cross.
Replays showed it could be a leg break, but the 20-year-old keeper has assured fans that he will do everything to come back stronger.
The AC Omonia shot-stopper took to Twitter to give an update while also assuring his fans the injury will not dampen his spirit. Uzoho said:
A big thank you to you all ??. I will be back stronger and better
IN CHRIST ALONE

This could turn out to be a massive blow for Uzoho who is starting to get his career back on track after a difficult campaign last season.
